Washington DC Newborn Photographer | At-home Newborn Session

The Benefits of Baby Wearing There are so many adjustments to becoming a new parent. One of the hardest things for me was time management.

Washington DC Newborn Session | In-home newborn Session

This Holiday Themed Family Session felt so fun and festive for a Washington DC Newborn Photographer in December. Little Piper had a NICU stay and we didn’t think we would have the chance to get the session in once she came home and before I went on maternity leave. But I was feeling good and […]

Holiday Themed Family Session | Washington, DC Newborn Photographer

I thought it was a very small chance of switching my provider at 36 weeks but I wanted to try. I adored my OB but when she told me she was switching departments I felt really sad…like I was needing to start over anyway. On a personal note I was thrilled for her because she […]
